While AEW Dynamite’s ratings bounced back for this week’s episode of the show, it appears that the episode did not garner the expected live audience.
The exact number of the people at the show which also served as the go-home episode for Full Gear is not known, but PWinsider is reporting that the numbers were in the 5000 range.
However, there were a lot of seats that were left empty and below you can see some photos of the empty seats from the hard camera side:
A pic from my cousin at the show tonight. As you can see a lot is taped off across the ring but so far this crowd is 🔥. Also, they’re coming to Mississippi on Jan 8th 2020….I think I’m going to have to go to this. Yeah? #AEWDynamite pic.twitter.com/NcrdZ0zrUN

AEW claims to be an alternative, then copies Smackdown's attendance.

It’s worth mentioning here that the ticket sales for AEW Full Gear seem to be going slower compared to the company’s other PPV events so far and there are still more than 1000 tickets remaining for the event.
Though despite these numbers, the site is reporting that everyone who was backstage at Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, NC for the go-home episode was thrilled with the show.
